All about becoming a member of the ASA

Joining the ASA makes you part of a well-regulated governing body that is always developing initiatives to forward the sport and is dedicated to allowing all our members to achieve their full potential.

Because full membership is only available via an affiliated club or affiliated body, you will also benefit from a club structure offering advice and guidance on a range of issues and a club using ASA qualified teachers and coaches.

All members receive insurance cover which includes Civil Liability, Personal Accident and Legal Advice. Members of the ASA also benefit from preferential rates from a number of companies. Currently these are:

HMCA logo

Hospital and Medical Care Association Private Medical Cover from the specialist for membership groups

Adrenaline insurance logo

Adrenaline Travel Insurance
The travel companion for individuals, groups and tours participating in sports and activities abroad.

You can only obtain full ASA membership by joining a club affiliated to The ASA (or an ASA affiliated body). You will then be asked to fill in the appropriate form.
